We were sad to hear about the passing (on 22 April 2020) of author Julian Leatherdale, a true gentleman.
Julian was an avid writer, first writing non-fiction and researching for documentaries. His fiction included: Palace of Tears (2015) set in the Blue Mountains; The Opal Dragonfly, set in Elizabeth Bay House in 1850s Sydney; and Death in the Ladies’ Goddess Club, a tale of murder, blackmail and family drama.
Generous with his advice and time, Julian will be missed. The literary world has lost a wonderful man.
